It's 2016... We Need Idols!

Postby LogDog » Wed Mar 23, 2016 10:07 pm

For those of you who still visit, Japanese music is alive and well around the world. One of the reasons why is (and has been for a long time) the popularity of idols. Many outside of Japan follow the AKBs and NKBs, Momoiro Clover and the Stardust groups, as well as Hello!Project groups. In fact, what brought me back into Japanese culture was idols in the past three years.

The last post on this board was eight years ago- and Japanese music (and idols!) have changed vastly since then. Let's discuss who you are listening to, who you really like, and who is going to be the next big thing.

You might have to start this discussion. The only exposure to idols I may have had was when I was into the J-Pop band Hinoi Team, and that only happened because I got hooked on their catchy ED to Ichigo 100%. That's how long ago that was.

So, LogDog, who are your favorite idols, then?

As far as music, I still exclusively get my J-Pop from anime OP and ED songs. In case anyone's interested, Freezing, Attack on Titan, and Noragami have songs that I've loved enough to hunt down and save to my playlist.
